    EDIT: Of course, the moment after I post this message, it starts working.

    Since yesterday, whenever I try to access Wikipedia from the home wifi, I get an error message from TalkTalk saying "Sorry, we could not find en.wikipedia.org". I get this message regardless how I try to get to the website, be it from google or directly entering the URL to the browser. This is not a filter issue. Does anyone know why this is happening?

    Sometimes, you just need to give the universe a nudge to make it behave itself

    It's just the WiFi throwing a paddy, happens quite a lot with talktalk I think.

    Yes this happened with me when I was on TalkTalk - very annoying. Consider changing broadband providers!

    Is this not a problem with Wikipedia though? because although I can access them now I have had problems recently with a message "unable to load page" or something like that for Wikipedia.
